As assistant secretary, Kevin Washburn has played a role in some of the most significant federal progress over the past half century. He explains what some of the major accomplishments have been under the Obama administration and outlines what he is targeting over the last year of his tenure. He spoke with GGB Contributing Editor Dave Palermo at NIGA’s Indian Gaming tradeshow earlier this month in San Diego. Next week, the GGB Podcast will bring listeners the full speech delivered by Washburn at NIGA.
